An Imperfect Smile Can Be Exhausting
Have you ever looked back at photos and noticed you guard your smile? Whether it’s a hand over your mouth or a closed-lip smile, it can be a painful reminder that you don’t feel comfortable with your own smile. How many pictures have you sat out for fear your true smile will get captured and later judged?

Affordable + Attainable
Expensive smiles are a common misconception. As cosmetic dental care becomes more popular, the cost of many procedures has become more affordable and attainable for many people. The popularity drives innovation for new procedures and lowers the cost of some options and materials.
If you’re trying to fit a cosmetic procedure into your budget or want to leverage insurance benefits, please share that during consultation. We’re eager to get you into the smile you deserve and share the best options that fit your cost expectations.
Popular Cosmetic Options
Professional whitening does in a few sessions what store-bought treatments take months to do.

When discoloration is deeper than the surface, veneers are often used to restore your smile.
We use resin bonding to cure many issues including chipped teeth, gaps, discoloration, and more.
Straighten up your smile with an almost invisible alternative to metal braces.

Let’s get your smile photo ready!
You can’t beat that “Instagram-able” smile. Pure white smiles are so desirable even smartphone apps include beauty filters. A whole teeth-whitening industry has popped up in local stores to meet the demand.
Unfortunately for some, they’ve found that store-bought whitening kits are messy, time-consuming, and many times will permanently damage tooth enamel. Since smartphone filters don’t work in real life, the best option is a professional whitening treatment.
Vial Family Dentistry offers a quick consultation to evaluate your smile and offer applicable treatments — and we’ll get started that same day! Whatever your situation or budget, we have options to make any stains or discoloration fade away permanently. When you’re done, even the smartphone filters won’t be able to improve your perfect white smile!

Crowns + Bridges
Smile (and chew) with confidence again!
If you’re hiding your smile because of a missing or broken tooth, you may be a great candidate for dental crowns or bridges. These are a solution made to fit over cracked, injured, or discolored teeth or fill in large gaps from missing teeth (often from tooth extractions).
There are many reasons we would recommend a crown, including:
- Restoring a broken or worn down tooth.
- Protecting a weak tooth from breaking or holding a fractured tooth together.
- Covering a misshapen or discolored tooth.
- Covering a tooth after a root canal treatment or large filling.
- Covering a dental implant.
A dental bridge can be used together with a crown or for separate situations, such as:
- Replacing teeth that need to be extracted.
- Replacing missing teeth.
Types of Crowns
At Vial Family Dentistry, we offer several options for dental crowns. While your situation may benefit from just a few options, we work with the following types of dental crowns:
- Ceramic or porcelain – most natural in appearance and best for color matching. Perfect for metal allergies.
- Zirconia – a better-looking alternative to metal crowns, this type is engineered for durability and strength. Great for patients who clench or grind their teeth.
- Metal – made from gold alloys, nickel, or other metals. Most durable and resist chipping or breakage, but undeniable appearance.
- Porcelain fused to metal – metal inner with a porcelain outer layer. Recommended to balance appearance and durability, but it is still visible as a dark line near the gum.
Depending on your unique situation, we will give you recommendations along with the benefits or potential drawbacks of each option. Contact us today to schedule your crown or bridge consultation.
Bring your smile to a whole new level.
When standard whitening treatments won’t work, porcelain veneers may be a perfect solution to find that bright, white smile. Often stains and discoloration are so deep into the enamel that even the most potent whitening treatments won’t work well.
Veneers are a thin cover placed on the tooth to cover the surface. This dramatically improves the color of your teeth nearly instantaneously! Since veneers are custom to each tooth, the result is a much more natural shape and brilliantly improved color.
We also use veneers to improve the appearance of misshapen teeth, close gaps, and improve the crowding or alignment of your teeth. The relatively immediate and drastic improvement to your smile makes this a popular choice!
There is some preparation required for veneers. Because veneers are like a thin cover, we will need to remove some of the tooth structure to fit them. There will be some drilling, though you’ll be comfortable throughout the process.
During a consultation with us at Vial Family Dentistry, we’ll evaluate your situation and give you the options we think work best for you. If one of these options includes a porcelain veneer, you will get a full explanation of the process and timing to reveal your new smile.

A quick, cost-effective solution for a beautiful smile.
One of the most popular cosmetic dental care options our patients choose is resin bonding. Because of its versatility, resin bonding works for many tooth challenges. It’s also a quick option; most often, we can complete the repairs on the same day as the consultation.
Resin bonding takes a composite resin substance and applies it to each tooth to correct situations such as:
- Restoring teeth after decay or small chips.
- Closing minor gaps between teeth.
- Reshaping teeth to better fit the overall smile.
- To protect exposed roots when the gums recede.
Each situation is different, and we will provide you with recommendations after a thorough examination. When resin bonding is an option, you’ll walk out of our office with a more confident and comfortable smile.
Contact us today to discuss if resin bonding is an option for you.
Get a perfect smile with an invisible treatment!
We offer clear aligners as an alternative to traditional metal braces. It might be worth considering a consultation for clear aligners if you’re looking for perfectly aligned teeth without the unappealing look of metal braces.
It’s quick too! This process can take as little as six months, while most treatments will last between 12 to 18 months. With the treatment, the alignment of your teeth will have dramatic improvement — and no obvious metal braces!
Depending on the situation, clear aligners can fix:
- Crowded teeth
- Tooth gaps (small or large)
